The R&GVRRM has had a rock solid start to 2011! After having to wait out all of December for the new shop floor to cure, the floor is now in service. The first project in the shop is the museum’s Case backhoe in for some routine maintenance and repairs. After the backhoe, the Trojan loader and the museum’s ex-military pickup trucks will see shop time to get repaired and ready for the spring and summer. The new floor certainly makes it much easier to work on our all of our equipment, and we would welcome more hands to help make the equipment repairs and maintenance happen.
We are in need of people willing and capable to working on our heavy equipment and our railroad equipment. From engine/transmission repair to metal fabrication to those trained in heavy equipment or locomotive operation, the museum needs people capable of all of them. Interested? Please stop out during one of our regularly scheduled work sessions or drop us an email to learn more. And we welcome people who can contribute weekly, monthly or every so often. We understand life is busy, and appreciate everyone who is willing to lend us a hand when they can.
